PRESIDENT SUSAN HERBST



On December 20, the University of Connecticut Board of Trustees voted to appoint Susan Herbst as UConn’s 15th president, following an intensive six-month search. She will begin at UConn in July and will frequently be in Connecticut starting in January, to meet and work with President Austin and UConn’s constituencies as part of the transition process. Welcome, President Herbst!

THIS IS OUR MOMENT.



On January 11, 2011, the UConn Foundation hung a banner on the front of its building at 2390 Alumni Drive in Storrs. Designed to raise awareness of our comprehensive campaign, Our University. Our Moment. The Campaign for UConn, the banner is a great way to get the message out to the entire University community!
